Kolomoki Festival Saturday

Head to Kolomoki State Park for the 44th Annual Kolomoki Festival!

A big day is planned for the 44th annual Kolomoki Festival with activities between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. New to the festival this year will be a wattle and daub house and a primitive hunting camp. Primitive skills will include flint knapping, pottery, bow making and blacksmithing.

Young festival goers can try their hand at the tomahawk throw and shooting a bow and arrow.

Georgia-Pacific will again sponsor Kolomoki Kids which offers a wide variety of arts and crafts projects for kids to make and take home.

Visitors can get a close look at nature with a pontoon boat cruise around Lake Kolomoki led by a naturalist or try their hand at hunting at the Department of Natural Resources hunting simulator located in Fort Lonesome at the top of the hill.

Entertainment in the G-P Amphitheater will feature dancers, vocalists and puppet shows. Live animal programs will be under the lakeside picnic shelter. Antique tractors will be on display and will parade twice during the day.

There will be plenty of food for festival goers with food vendors featuring BBQ, hamburgers, hotdogs, funnel cakes and more at the food court. Arts and crafts vendors will be located at the top of the hill.

Trams will be available to shuttle visitors between parking and the festival site.
